Charismatic Renewal – Konkani

The parish’s Konkani Prayer Group which started in 1999 is affiliated to the Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCR) as the Konkani Service Council (KSC). The group is engaged in such services as visiting homes, providing assistance to the poor and needy, conducting intercessory prayers, and participating in church activities.

The group conducts a prayer meeting every Friday from 7:30 to 8:30pm in the Council Room. An intercessory prayer meeting is also held every Wednesday from 7:30 to 8:30pm at the same venue.

The group organizes an annual “Monthi Fest” on the occasion of Our Lady’s birthday on Sept. 8.

Membership in the group is open to all and persons can attend meetings as per their needs and convenience. No meeting is ever cancelled for lack of attendance. Richard D’Silva and his wife Juliet have been leading and nurturing the group from the day of its inception.

Fr. Sunil Menezes, assistant parish priest, is the group’s Spiritual Director and contributes to its spiritual growth with his physical presence, prayers and preaching on the Holy Word.

The group can be contacted via the Church office at tel. 2640-7891 or 2651-1901.
